No Mercy – Demand for Justice

We live in a vengeful world where very little mercy is shown and people want to see justice done whenever anything happens to them, when they are the victims but they forget themselves, the things that they have done to others, how they have wronged others. They forget their own sins. They do not show mercy and therefor they will not receive mercy.
Jesus said, Matthew 5:7“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.“
People pray the Lords prayer, so often but they do not think what they are praying, because they pray, and say, Matthew 6:12‘And forgive us our debts, AS WE ALSO HAVE FORGIVEN OUR DEBTORS.’
Verse 14:“For if you forgive men their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15“BUT IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE OTHERS, THEN YOUR FATHER WILL NOT FORGIVE YOUR TRANSGRESSIONS.” If we do not forgive, then our sins will not be forgiven, they will not be forgotten, but we will be punished for those sins and THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH, A TERRIFYING ETERNAL DAMNATION! That is the wages of sin. And even Christians don’t have mercy on each other. They are continuously attacking each other, gossiping, tearing each other to pieces, tearing other people down, they have got NO MERCY! They WANT JUSTICE! That same JUSTICE will be applied to you. If you cry for justice then God will bring justice to you for whatever YOU have done wrong! But if we forgive and we show mercy then God will show us mercy. If we cannot forgive others then God will not forgive us. If we cannot show mercy we will not receive mercy. If we cannot forgive than our sins will also not be forgiven and we will have to pay for our wrongdoings, for each and every one of them, If we do not FROM OUR HEART, FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE WRONGED US!
I read in Matthew 18:21”And Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” 22Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.”
If we do not forgive FROM THE HEART EVERY TIME, then God will not forgive us, then our sins will be held against us.
I also read from Matthew 18:23 “For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves. 24“And when he had begun to settle them, there was brought to him one who owed him ten thousand talents.25“But since he did not have the means to repay, his lord commanded him to be sold, along with his wife and children and all that he had, and repayment to be made. 26“The slave therefor falling down prostrated himself before him, saying, ‘Have patience with me and I will repay you everything.’ 27“And the lord of that slave felt compassion and released him and forgave him the debt. 28“But that slave went out and found one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and he seized him and began to choke him, saying, ‘Pay back what you owe.’ 29“So the fellow slave fell down and began to entreat him, saying, ‘Have patience with me and I will repay you.’ 30“He was unwilling however but went and threw him in prison until he should pay back what was owed. 31“So when his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were deeply grieved and came and reported to their lord all that had happened. 32“Then summoning him, his lord said to him, ‘You wicked slave, I forgave you all that debt because you entreated me. 33‘Should you not also have had mercy on your fellow slave, even as I had mercy on you?’ 34“And his lord, moved with anger, handed him over to the torturers until he should repay all that was owed him. 35“SO SHALL MY HEAVENLY FATHER WILL ALSO DO TO YOU, IF EACH OF YOU DOES NOT FORGIVE HIS BROTHER FROM YOUR HEART.”
How many people are there who are walking around with grudges, who do not forgive others from the heart, who want others to come and beg forgiveness from them, but they themselves do not find mercy in them to others? If we do not have mercy and show mercy from the heart, we will not receive mercy. We will receive judgment!
Let us show mercy and then we can also ask for mercy from our heavenly Father.
May Jesus bless you.
